UK’s 2014 Next Green Car Awards fetes VW e-Up!, Tesla Model S

Volkswagen e-Up!

They like the Tesla Model S across the Pond, too. The California-made electric vehicle was one of about a dozen models given props by the UK’s Next Green Car Awards. And the prizes ran the gamut between conventional, diesel, plug-in and battery-electric powertrains because who doesn’t like variety?

Leading off in the Next Green Car awards was the Volkswagen e-Up!, which took home the City Car award. On the smaller side, the Vauxhall Corsa 1.0 Ecotec and Peugeot 308 1.6 BlueHDi were also praised for their low emissions.

Moving up on the weight scale, the Ford Mondeo 2.0 Hybrid took the Large Family car award, while the Crossover award went to the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6 BlueHDi. Americans may associate “Family Estate” cars with huge, fake-wood-paneled station wagons of the ’70s and ’80s (and with Clark Griswold), but NGC gave the Family Estate award to the far-more-fun Audi A3 Sportback e-tron plug-in hybrid.

The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 216d, Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid, Nissan e-NV200 Combi and Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric were also all given props. Finally, the Tesla took home the top-of-the-line “Executive” prize. Check out Next Green Car’s press release below or this PDF.
